Novel Diagnostic Marker for Acute Kidney Injury Previewed at Abbott-Sponsored Scientific Workshop
Date:7/29/2008

by a nephrologist and a third will go on dialysis. "Clinically, there is no comparison since NGAL provides specific and rapid diagnosis of AKI while creatinine blood tests are not able to distinguish AKI from chronic kidney disease," Devarajan said.

"From the single drop of urine, we obtain essential information when time is critical to help prevent kidney failure and save lives. With close monitoring, the early information provided by the NGAL test could make treatments more effective if started at the beginning of AKI," he said.

Devarajan presented his findings during a symposium at AACC titled Translational Medicine and the Clinical Laboratory: Emerging Biomarkers for Acute Kidney Injury. The marker has been the subject of recent articles published in Lancet, Annals of Internal Medicine and the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology. Devarajan's research was supported, in part, by a restricted research grant from Abbott.

Abbott is developing a unique urine NGAL test and has initiated international clinical trials.
